For well over a month I would catch Timmy singing little bits of Christmas songs. I would ask him about them and he wouldn’t tell me. I asked his teacher, she said they had started practicing for there Christmas concert. This brought me huge excitement! His first ever Christmas concert. What parent does not like seeing there kid in a concert? So yes, I was very excited indeed!
As the concert got closer, he started singing more and more. But if he saw me watching or knew I was listening he would stop. I asked him why, he said “it’s a surprise mummy!” A letter went out to all parents detailing the day, we were asked to bring a plate of food and to also bring a gift that Santa would give to your child. I could not wait for the day to come.
Finally it was concert day, Timmy was beside himself with excitement, I was equally excited. We get there 10 minutes before it is due to start and the room is packed. I have to stand up the back behind alot of tall people and can barely see him. Luckily Carl is with me, he can see Timmy (carl is rather tall) and manages to get some photos and film a video or two of him! I couldn’t have been more proud. My little man was up there having a ball, he knew all the words and actions. I honestly nearly cried at the sight of him, seriously proud mummy moment!
At the end, Santa comes in and all the kids get called one by one and get their present and photo with Santa. Luckily Timmy loved his present, a cash register. He is right into playing shops and that sort of thing these days so it was the perfect present.
Honestly, this time of year makes me reflect on the past year and how far Timmy has come. How grown up he is becoming now. They honestly grow up too fast. I think back to when he was just my baby, he will be 4 this coming year….bloody 4!!! Where has the past 4 years gone?!! I am so proud of the little man he is growing into.
On his last day at school before the holidays, his school sent home his portfolio for the year. It had pictures, photos, paintings ect that he had done through the year. I was looking through it, so proud and secretly cried. I don’t know what it is, but once I popped out my first child I cry over everything and anything, the littlest thing will set me off. So it was no surprise that when I opened his Christmas present from school, it was a dvd they had made of photos through the year, I sat there Christmas morning, tears streaming down my face, happy tears of course! I love those sorts of things, but I hate how I cry. Its literally uncontrollable.
I know this post is slightly late, I had originally wanted it out before new years, that just did not happen! Sorry! It is actually one of my new years resolutions, be more efficient with my blogging. Lets see how I go.
